Southern QB, 2 Tulane players take La. Sports Writers Association Player of the Week honors


BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — A big win by Southern and a last-second win by Tulane earned players from those teams the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Player of the Week honors.

Quarterback Austin Howard of Southern sent the Jaguars to the Bayou Classic in a couple of weeks on a winning note with a 46-7 win over Alabama A&M to earn offensive honors.

Tulane defensive tackle had a career high nine tackles and kicker kicked the game-winning field goal as time ran out in Tulane's 34-31 win at Army.
